I'm assuming there is a sensor attached to the emergency brake pedal. Try driving the car with those sensor wires shorted together.

Hi I have a 99 Voyager and it has a spring release emergency brake. I recently pressed the brake in when I parked, and when I can back to leave my Emergency brake would not release. I need Help!


Try pushing it down with your foot again and pulling up on the release at the same time. This should release it. Also try backing up while you pull the release. Sometimes this will jar the cable to release. THe cable may need to be replaced

Emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado


I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken


What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension

Emergency Brake Cable Is Broken


Somewhat easy to replace. The part is a dealer item (purchase only from Chevrolet dealer) If you are going to do this yourself, take many photos on the progression of the job to refer back to when putting it back together. Good Luck!
